    First Species Named After Trump Is a Moth With Blonde 'Hair'

    The endangered insect's "hair" is actually a tuft of yellow scales and the moth is also unique for its peculiar genitalia.

    BY JEN VIEGAS

    The first official living species to be named after the soon-to-be 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, is an endangered small moth with a unique tuft of yellow scales on its head.

    The newly documented moth, Neopalpa donaldtrumpi, is described in the journal ZooKeys. It is the second moth associated with Trump, as the southern flannel moth in its caterpillar stage was dubbed the "Donald Trump's Hair moth," but that moniker was just a nickname.

    As for why moths so often seem to sport Trump-like "hair-do's," author Vazrick Nazari of the Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnids and Nematodes explained to Seeker: "Moths are the second largest group of insects (after beetles) and among the most diverse animals. They are geologically very old, and through millions of years of evolution they have acquired the most amazing life cycles, adaptations and characteristics."

    He was not surprised to see a Trump-resembling 'do on the new moth.

    "What the function of these scales are, we are not sure," he said. "Perhaps they play a role in flight or thermoregulation."

    Genetic analysis and comparison with other moths enabled the determination that the recently discovered insect represent a new species. The male's "genitalia (are) comparatively smaller" than those seen in another closely related moth. One such part, known as the vinculum posterior margin, is described as being "weakly developed."

    Just seven individuals are known of this new tiny moth, so it is already highly endangered. N. donaldtrumpi flies in dune habitats in Southern California and Baja California, Mexico. Its host plant(s) for its larval and earlier life stages remain a mystery, but appear to be in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae), which includes tomatoes, potatoes, eggplants, tobacco and also some toxic species.

    Nazari said that the moth's dune habitats are under constant pressure from human activity, and especially dune-buggy enthusiasts. In naming the new moth after Trump, Nazari wishes to improve conservation of such landscapes.

    "I hope to bring some public attention to the importance of conservation of the fragile habitats in the United States," he said, adding that the dune regions are "under imminent danger of destruction. The incoming administration should make every effort to continue preserving these important ecosystems that still contain undiscovered and undescribed species."

    Note that the new moth is the first living species to be officially named after Trump. In November of last year, a fossil sea urchin, Tetragramma donaldtrumpi, was also named after the President-Elect. That urchin, however, lived during the Lower Cretaceous around 110 million years ago, and is long gone, aside from its fossilized remains.

    Unlike the moths, the inch-long sea urchin did not resemble Trump, but instead looked like "a lifesaver candy," according to fossil collector William Thompson of Texas who documented it.

    Trump promises to 'work hard' for the American people

    January 20, 2017

    Washington, January 20 (IANS) Donald Trump pledged unity and promised a change that America has not seen in decades, as he spoke in front of a crowd of thousands in Washington, D.C., on his final day as President-elect.

    “I promise you that I will work so hard. We’re gonna get it turned around,” Trump told supporters while speaking on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday evening, pledging to bring back American jobs, build up the military and strengthen the nation’s borders.

    “We’re going to do things that haven’t been done for our country for many, many decades. It’s going to change. I promise you. It’s going to change,” Politico quoted the real-estate mogul as saying.

    Trump traded in his beloved private plane for a military jet earlier on Thursday and arrived in Washington with his family for three days of festivities, CBS News reported.

    Accompanied by Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Trump started his day by laying a wreath at the Arlington National Cemetery on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, marking the formal beginning of the end of their transition to the White House.

    Trump spoke for a little more than six minutes at the Lincoln Memorial, echoing much of his campaign rhetoric: He hailed his campaign as a “movement” that’s never been seen before, recounted how it started in June 2015, rattled off estimates of the massive crowd sizes from his past rallies, reminded supporters that this is their movement and that he was merely the messenger, and vowed to unify the country.

    He thanked the performers at his “Make America Great Again” welcome celebration and his family for their support, and said his transition team had the idea to host a concert at the Lincoln Memorial, which he suggested may never have occurred before.

    In fact, President Barack Obama held his inauguration concert in 2009 at the Lincoln Memorial.

    “So many people have poured into Washington, D.C. This started out tonight being a small little concert, and then we had the idea, ‘Maybe we’ll do it in front of the Lincoln Memorial,'” Trump said.

    “I don’t know if it’s ever been done before, but if it has, very seldom. And the people came by the thousands and the thousands, and here we are tonight, all the way back.”

    Trump arrived at the Lincoln Memorial with much fanfare, drawing chants of “Trump!” from the thousands of supporters before The Frontmen of Country – Tim Rushlow, Larry Stewart and Richie McDonald – performed a medley of their greatest hits, including Trump’s campaign song, “God Bless the USA”, with country star Lee Greenwood, Politico reported.

    The concert featured country singer Toby Keith, rock band 3 Doors Down, Indian origin DJ Ravidrums and veteran Hollywood actor Jon Voight, among others.

    This was followed by a black-tie pre-inauguration dinner where in between acknowledgements to his staff and jibes at former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, he spoke of Friday’s swearing in ceremony, joking that if it rains as predicted, at least the taunts about his gravity-defying hair might stop, the Daily Mail reported.

    Meanwhile, several hundred anti-Trump protesters set off fires on the street near a celebration by his supporters called the DeploraBall, a name inspired by Hillary Clinton’s description of some Trump supporters as “deplorables”, at the National Press Club Building in Washington and police in riot gear retaliated with pepper spray.

    The police said that there were no serious injuries or arrests at the incident.

    About 900,000 people are expected to be at his inauguration on Friday, either as participants or protesters. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the media that 28,000 law enforcement personnel will be deployed.

    The President-elect and future First Lady are expected to spend their last night before taking public office at Blair House, as is tradition, before Trump is sworn in on Friday.

    Friday morning Trump will first go to a church and then visit the White House. From there, he and President barack Obama will then go to the Capitol for the swearing-in.

    Chief Justice John Roberts will swear-in Trump, who will place his hands on a Bible he used as a child and another that belonged to late President Abraham Lincoln.

    As the newly minted President he is to walk from there with his family to the White House and occupy the symbol of the presidency.
